    Loved the cabin and owner called 2 hours after check in to make sure every thing was to our satisfaction

    We had a room and a staff person was there when we arrived.

    We arrived at 11 pm,when we got into our Chalet,it was freezing cold,outside temperature was 36 degrees,inside was the same temperature. The upper and lower heating unit were not on, the upper heating unit only blow minimal warm air,the lower unit not at all.Fireplace gave only heat when you were directly in front. Breakfast in the morning was nothing(disaster)(muffin & coffee),we left with a very bitter experience and had breakfast down the street.

    Friendly is the operative word. We were running later than expected, call the hotel and the owner had our door cracked open, key inside, heater on and his response...be safe driving. When you get here, go to your room and rest.

    It was nice and quiet. The full kitchen was very nice since local restaurants closed early. The cabin was very spacious and well kept. The fire place timer wasn't functioning correctly due to the pilot light being unlit. One call to the front desk and within the hour someone had come and addressed the issue.

    We had a large pot to boil water and a pizza pan the day we checked in. The next day when we went to use those items they were both missing. We had to use a small sauce pot and a makeshift pan made of aluminum foil to cook our dinner.

    Owner, Mark, was a delight. He was helpful especially in giving his recommendations for places to eat. He is a sincere and natural host and truly cares about the well-being of his visitors. The room was set up well with a fridge, microwave, and coffee maker so one could eat in easily. Sleeping was extremely restful and comfortable with mattress, pillows, and bedding all one could wish for. Location was handy to all things in Helen area. One could walk into town in minutes or hop in the car to go to Anna Ruby Falls. I loved having the Chattahoochee right outside the door! The water was high and running fast so one didn't even have to leave the room for a mountain experience. Wonderful value for money spent and I look forward to coming back soon.

    The front desk mgr, Mark, gave exceptional service. The hotel location was great. The only bad thing was that the motel didn't have an elevator. Besides that, it was perfect.

    No elevators

    the staff was great, everyone was friendly, the rooms one nice, beds were comfortable. Best price and location in the area.

    Owner/Manager was friendly and helpful to the best of his ability.

    The available internet service is grossly over rated. In fact, their system offers so little band width you can only connect sporadically. If you place any value at all on being able to use the internet, DO NOT choose Riverbend Motel !!!

    It is right in the center of town, a perfect place to walk from.

    The bathroom was tiny and the complimentary soaps and shampoos were horrible.

  • Older travelers

    it was very convenient to main street Helen, GA. Walking distance easy from your room to main street. The motel has some age on it but very comfortable and clean. I checked out all of the intown hotels and this was by far the best value and the convenience was second to none. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful to us. I highly recommend it unless you are stuck on luxury accomodations. It was perfect for a weekend getaway.

    The owner was very nice. The rooms and facilities are older but remodeled and very comfortable. The location is ideal if your going to Helen Ga (within a 2 minute walk to the town square). The scenery is awesome, this hotel is directly on the river and has a multiple bench swing area on the river bank. Parking is included in the room rate, otherwise you would pay to park to go to the town square. The Room rates are very reasonable, and downright cheap if you get a special online.
